anticonvulsant drug

« Back to Glossary Index

An anticonvulsant drug, also known as an antiepileptic drug, is a medication that is primarily used to prevent or control seizures in people with epilepsy. These drugs work by stabilizing the electrical activity in the brain and nervous system. They are also used to treat a range of other conditions, including nerve pain, bipolar disorder, and migraine headaches. Some common anticonvulsant drugs include Carbamazepine, Phenytoin, Valproic acid, Lamotrigine, Gabapentin, and Pregabalin. However, anticonvulsant drugs can have side effects, and it’s important to work closely with a healthcare provider when taking them and follow dosage instructions carefully.
